SCRAPBOOK SATURDAYS: Head Fulluv Bhudda

Sunday, May 24th, 2009


Uh Sundays. Yeah this was supposed to go up yesterday. Long weekend. Deal with it.

This is a promo one sheet from E-40′s classic “Practice Lookin Hard.” For those unfamiliar, E-40 is “the undisputed don of mountain mobster music, possessing a rap style not unlike Woody Woodpecker with a head fulluv bhudda.” And a Pearl Jam namedrop in 1994 is roughly the equivalent to a Coldplay cosignature today, no?

“Practice” video is painfully unembedabble. Fuck Zomba, I sell nose candy Willy Wonka.

Does this series work for people? I know I’m a few days or even weeks late on some of these joints, and probably costing myself some oh so valuable page impressions by not making these separate updates, but this approach makes it a lot easier to organize my thoughts and make sure I am getting you records that are actually good or at least significant. I can go back to the one post per song frantic Nah Right pace if that’s preferred. But I probably won’t.

Spinning off last nights jerkin’ post [||] here some real grown rappers jump on one of the scene’s early inspirations. Hyphy may have officially lost its way when so many of its principles decided to cues from Atlanta on their signature singles. Suddenly it was high energy crunk, low fi snap, strip club bass anything but the synth madness Rick Rock freak outs that the bay fell in love with. “No Hoe” side steps such distinctions by basically being all of these things at once. According to the email it was attached to it clocks in at 100 BPM (I’ll take their word for it, I forgot how to count beats around the same time being a DJ became a less relevant pursuit than being a janitor) but it’s so spacious it seems like it is crawling. Also some of the rapping is close to excellent. (more…)

from Incredibad (Universal, 2008)

40 Water links up with The Lonely Island of SNL/”Jizz In My Pants”/”Lazy Sunday” fame for this tribute to the greatest Mexican-American guitarist of all time and the greatest sparkling wine he ever attached his name to. It’s not the direct “Carlos Rossi” parody some had hoped for, but 40 rapping from the perspective of Carlos Santana surely warrants a mention. Anyone else catching a “Pimps” vibe from this track?

Incredibad is in stores Tuesday.
